NOTES: Ernest Iverson's 1931 songbook included "They Go Wild Over Me", an adaptation of "The Popular Wobbly", which in turn was a parody of the 1917 song "They Go Wild Simply Wild Over Me". The author of "The Popular Wobbly" was the Finnish-American labor activist T-Bone Slim. The 1931 book also had Iverson's adaptation of Robert Service’s "The Men Who Don't Fit In". Ernest and Clarence Iverson recorded three songs by Carson Robison: "Oh, Why Did I Get Married", "What Are You Squawking About" and "Peg Leg Jack". The Iverson Brothers' 1937 songbook had an advertisement for Hamlins Wizard Oil on the back cover. Their 1939 songbook concluded with the following recommendation: "Listen to Slim Jim and the Vagabond Kid on the Town Market Furniture Company Radio Program."
